Ok my chickens i have been told that they look a bit to big so like i said before so im worried my chickens are obese so i want to know how much is a chicken supposed to weigh when she has layed her first egg
Glad you could join us here! It really does depend on what breed your chickens are as to how much they weigh. I would suggest you research the breed of your chickens to get an average weight of them. If they are on a healthy well balanced diet I would not be too worried.
Wishing you the very best of luck for the future and enjoy BYC
Greetings from Kansas, Mrfarmer, and ! Great to have you aboard! I agree with Yorkshire - tell us what kind of birds you have. To my experience, Cornish Cross are the only variety that will eat themselves into a stupor and get obese....most other breeds seem to regulate themselves pretty well around food. Best of luck.
That is a hybrid that, depending on from what hatchery it was purchased, goes by a variety of names...red sex link, Red Star, Production Red, cherry egger. It is derived from cross between a Rhode Island Red and a New Hampshire. It doesn't look obese to me. Just looks like a healthy chicken. Hope this helps!
